Overview

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday villa in Luberon - La Bergerie Provencale

House in Roussillon for 8 people with Air Conditioning and Heated Swimming Pool

La Bergerie Provençale is set amidst the villages, vineyards, and orchards of Provence’s renowned Luberon national park.

Originally a 200 year old stone ‘Bergerie’ or shepherds house, the property has been extended and renovated to create a stunning and luxury villa within one hectare of gated private gardens with a very large 6x12 meter heated swimming pool.

Approached along a tree-lined drive, the house is situated in the beautiful countryside of the Luberon and is surrounded on all sides by vineyards, farmland and woodland with beautiful uninterrupted views of the village of Roussillon, one of France’s acclaimed ‘Les Plus Beaux Villages de France’.

Located in the very heart of the Luberon valley, the house is within easy driving distance of the areas most famous hilltop ‘perched’ villages, markets and restaurants including Gordes, Menerbes, Lacoste, Bonnieux with the local village of Roussillon only 3 minutes drive away.

The House has been designed to be a very comfortable and stylish home away from home. When you arrive you will be greeted by our English, French and German speaking house manager who will introduce to the house and its facilities.

There are four large double bedrooms opening out onto the shaded terrace overlooking the pool. Two of the bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms with baths and separate showers. The third and fourth bedrooms share a third separate bathroom equipped with bath and shower.

All bedrooms are fitted with Air Conditioning for your comfort.

The kitchen is well equipped with dishwasher, American fridge freezer, oven and microwave. A spacious separate utility room comes equipped with washing machine and drying area.

The house is naturally cool in summer and has under-floor heating and a large open fireplace in the living room for the cooler months.

The lounge has a large LCD television and DVD player with a wide range of satellite channels including all of the UK freeview channels including the childrens channels. Guests are welcome to use the iPod compatible sound dock and wireless broadband internet access.

Linen, towels and pool towels are included together with a cleaning service on departure.

Outside the gardens extend to one hectare containing a mixture of lawns, oak woodland and orchard. The heated south facing 6x12m swimming pool is reached by winding stone paths and is surrounded by a grassed area for sunbathing. The pool is accessed by security gate and is fitted with the latest automatic cover to ensure the safety of your family.

Sun loungers are provided as well as a lavish 3x3 metre outside L-shaped sofa for relaxing by the pool. Directly next to the pool terrace is the outdoor summer kitchen, this is equipped with a large BBQ. Another totally separate outside dining area is located in a grove of oak trees under a vine covered pergola.

Lovely and peaceful

  • 4 of 5

Excellent Villa- large, spacious, beautiful setting and wonderfully traditional in design. The 3 areas of the house suited 3 couples very well. A little more attention to detail would have made it perfect eg pool cover and toaster broken, limited instructions, not enough hand towels provided, insufficient cutlery, no welcome pack - which you would expect at this price. But generally this didn't detract from the lovely holiday we all had

Stay in Provence

  • 4 of 5

The villa is lovely and spacious. Plenty of room and the grounds are well maintained. A few minor hitches did not detract from the enjoyment. Christian (the manager) was very friendly and approachable. Lovely.

Lovely spacious house in a very peaceful location

  • 5 of 5

The house is in a stunning location with lovely views over the Luberon. We hired bikes and visited many of the beautiful local towns . Roussillon is very close by car or a stiff uphill cycle walk , but worth it when you get there with plenty of restaurants , bars and boutique shops.

The house itself was very spacious ,comfortable and clean. The grounds are extensive with plenty to occupy yourself , such as swimming in the large pool , boules and table tennis .

Any questions or help needed were dealt with quickly by Neil , the owner, or his site manager , Christian.

Overall , a great and memorable stay . We wouldn't hesitate to recommend or return in the future.

A luberon's paradise

  • 5 of 5

This was just the perfect place to stay in the Luberon. It's rely well located. The area is breathtaking. This house is very well decorated and extremely comfy. The garden is big and very well taken care of, not mentioning the wonderful vista. Adults and kids had a blast in the pool! One week wasn't enough... Hope we'll be back soon!

Roussillon is located in the heart of the Luberon’s 'Golden Triangle' formed by the medieval hilltop villages of Gordes, Bonnieux, Lourmarin, Lacoste, Menerbes (featured in Peter Mayle's 'Year in Provence') and Oppede-le-Vieux, all of which are within 10-20 minutes drive.

The medieval village hides a picturesque maze of streets and squares, full of charming restaurants and art galleries. If you walk to the top of the village you will see wonderful panoramic views across the valley to the Grand Luberon, the slopes of Mont Ventoux, and the plateau of the Vaucluse.

The Luberon is considered to be the heart of Provence and the house is a perfect base to explore Avignon, Aix en provence, Orange and Arles all within an hours drive. The closest beach is located an hour's away at Cassis which has a fine sandy beach just outside the port, the Plage de la Grande mer. The French Riviera is two hours away.

It is a one hour drive to the international airports at Marseille and Nimes. The high speed TGV train service stops at Avignon is also one hour from the house.
